“Over the past two weeks, no cases of sabotage and terrorist attacks have been detected in the Kursk region. I thank the special services and law enforcement officers for their work, and the residents for their vigilance! But the situation on the border does not allow to relax: shelling from the Ukrainian side continues. <…> we decided to extend the “yellow” level of terrorist threat for another two weeks, until August 8,” writes the head of the Kursk region Roman Starovoit in his Telegram channel.
He asked local residents to call 112 to notify “about suspicious citizens, abandoned objects and unmanned aerial vehicles.”
“Until August 8, a “yellow” level of terrorist threat operates on the territory of the Belgorod region. Today I signed the corresponding document. Everything on whom our security depends – the Ministry of Defense, the Ministry of Emergency Situations, the border service, other law enforcement agencies – are doing their job in full, ”said Gladkov, Governor of the Bolgorod Region.
Earlier, the authorities of the Kursk region extended the “yellow” level of terrorist threat until July 23. Residents have been urged to be vigilant and report suspicious citizens, abandoned objects, and sightings of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). The region has been under attack from Ukraine for several months. So, on July 5, the Glushkovsky district was shelled. Eight residential buildings and infrastructure facilities were damaged. In addition, a church and a water tower in the village of Popovo-Lezhachi were damaged.
For the first time, the security regime was introduced on April 11. Since then, the “yellow” level has been extended every two weeks due to provocations from the Ukrainian side.
In Ukraine and in the Donbass, the special operation of the Russian Federation to protect the population of the Luhansk and Donetsk People’s Republics continues, the beginning of which Russian President Vladimir Putin announced on February 24. Moscow explained that its tasks include the demilitarization and denazification of Ukraine. On April 19, the Russian side announced the start of the next stage of the military operation – “the complete liberation of the Donetsk and Luhansk republics.”
